<Day 2 3 nights ~ Cape Grace

Your Itinerary

Nestled on a private quay in Cape Town's bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront between a working harbour and the serenity of an international yacht marina, Cape Grace is a welcome and gracious sanctuary of traditional sophistication whilst emanating style and comfort. The spaciousness of the refashioned Cape influence rooms; the diversity of amenities and the unsurpassed standards in service - both proficient and personal - have all ensured Cape Grace is a favourite for many returning guests. From the globally inspired offerings of the hotel's restaurant Signal, to the whisky, wine and cocktail treats that await below deck at the popular Bascule Whisky, Wine and Cocktail Bar, to the African delights that surprise at The Spa at Cape Grace and finally, to the customised yacht charters on Spirit of the Cape, the hotel is dedicated to surpassing expectations and making your stay the most memorable ever.

<Day 3 ~ Steenberg Golf Club

Play today at Steenberg (tbc). An 18 hole championship course designed by Peter Matkovich; a backdrop of vineyards, gardens, forests and mountains provides the setting for this beautiful exclusive course. The course is always in excellent condition with bent grass greens and lush fairways. Steenberg offers you the opportunity of excellent golf within the historic setting of one of the Cape's oldest wine farms. Dating back to 1682 the vineyards have been replanted and 140 acres are now under vines.

image

<Day 4 ~ Royal Cape Golf Club

Play today at Royal Cape (tbc), the oldest golf club in Africa (1895) which has hosted the South African Open no less than ten times and the SA Amateur Championships eight times. The most recent SA Open held here was in 1996 and was won by Ernie Els. Essentially it is a very flat parkland course, it is always well maintained and a pleasure to play, with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. But don't be deceived by its apparent easiness. The fairways are narrow, demanding extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalized amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered, especially in the prominent South-Westerly wind, locally referred to as the Cape Doctor.

<Day 5 2 nights ~ Marine Hermanus

image

Your Itinerary

The Marine is one of the southern hemisphere's most spectacular seaside properties. Perched on the cliffs, overlooking Hermanus' Walker Bay, The Marine boasts 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites.  This unforgettable property overlooks South Africa's most pristine whale sanctuary, and it is just a stone's throw from one of the greatest densities of the endangered Great White Shark, and selection of fynbos species in the Cape.  The Marine offers guests the unique opportunity to experience the finest land-based whale watching in the world. From June to November guests are able to view these majestic creatures from the comfort of their beautiful sea view room.

<Day 6 ~ Arabella Golf Club

Today play Arabella (tbc). Ranked no. 5 in South Africa in 2005, Arabella is perfectly designed to exploit is unique position alongside the largest natural lagoon in Southern Africa. The 8th, 9th, 17th and 18th holes run parallel to the lagoon, proving a truly memorable experience. Choosing a signature hole proves to be an extremely difficult task as all of the holes are well designed with spectacular views. The course is the host course to the Nelson Mandela Invitational, Africa's premier Pro-am Charity Event. (cart fee included)

<Day 7 2 nights ~ Lanzerac Hotel

Your Itinerary

Situated on the outskirts of the historic town of Stellenbosch, the Lanzerac Estate is a 300 year old private working wine estate in the Jonkershoek Valley.

<Day 8 ~ Pearl Valley Golf Club

Play today at Pearl Valley (tbc). Set in the famous Franschhoek Wine region, this new Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is a treat to play. Pearl Valley is probably in the top conditioned course in South Africa. As with many Nicklaus courses, water on the right with plenty of sand, will keep the golfers mind off the wide landing areas provided. Also a new development, the course and it's geographical location allow for guests to enjoy a day outing in the Winelands with high quality golf to compliment the food and wine. A second course, 'Bears Best' will be built shortly on the same property. (cart fee included)

Your Itinerary

Rattray’s on MalaMala offers a glimpse of an era long past when distant travellers to Africa married the magic of the wild with an elegance and refinement that have been immortalized in the epic tale of Karen Blixen in "Out of Africa".

Rattray’s on MalaMala’s bears the style of crystal and leather, with beautiful furnishings that are a treat to the connoisseur of the finer things in life, captured over generations on a land that remains as old as time. Each suite or khaya (Zulu for home) functions as an inclusive home, resplendent with hand-selected furnishings, lavish his-and-hers bathrooms, a secluded outdoor shower and a private heated plunge pool..
